BRUSSELS — EU antitrust regulators are set to give a conditional clearance to business information provider S&P Global Inc for its $44 billion acquisition of IHS Markit Ltd, three people familiar with the matter said.

The people also told Reuters that S&P has already managed to address the European Commission’s competition concerns with its offer to sell the US IHS unit, Oil Pricing Agency Oil Price Information Service (OPIS), to News Corp.
